Some of the presents I recieved for Christmas!!!!

I just want to point out now that in no way am I bragging or are intending to brag about the things I have received I just wish to share them with you and tell you my opinions :D

I hope you all had amazing Christmas's and received everything that you wished for!

Now here are a few things that I received-


 Makeup..............

The naked 3 palette from Urban Decay!
 
I was just so excited when I opened this from my parents, because I had asked for it but had seen that it was sold out everywhere so I didn't think that my mum would be able to get it but luckily my dad had managed to pick it up while waiting in Debenhams!

I think that we should all just sit and admire this packaging for a minute can it get much more perfect?

I do love the size of the palette especially because it gives you a really good size mirror instead of just a little one in the centre!

However I think that one of the best things about this palette would have to be how each eye shadow has an individual name! I think that it just gives the palette that little extra touch to make it even more special!

And I honestly cant wait to start using this but just don't want to mess up the prettiness of it, but it has to be done right? well if you want pretty eye makeup :)
 
 
 
Another makeup gift I received was the best of benefit box! which was kindly given to me from my grandma and granddad.

I just have to say that I honestly just love this box! And in this box which I didn't realise until I opened it up was that there is a little voucher for a free makeover from benefit in any boots store! and it is valid until April! so I just think that it just tops the present off making it even more amazing!

 I have actually used a number of the products before but just think that it is really good that I now have them in miniatures and this makes my makeup bag so much easier to take and zip up when traveling!
 
I also love the idea of these sort of presents because I actually did want to try the high beam highlighter but was reluctant to pay the full price because I didn't want to only to use it once and decide that I did not like it, but with this gift it just means that I can try different products and then if I do wish to buy a full size I can while knowing if I like them or not!
 
 
Now moving on to a bit of fashion........
 

I actually choose these tops out myself and my mum ordered them for me so it was one of the few presents that I knew I was getting.
I already have two of the same kind of tops which I got for my birthday but I do really like these two because of how big a Disney fan I am and I just love the film mean girls where the quote 'on Wednesdays we wear pink' comes from.

I think these tops would look great with shorts in the summer or over a bikini or even with jeans and a jacket if the weather has a bit more of a chill to it just because they look fun

 
If you did want to see these tops styled together with other items of clothing please just ask in the comments:)
 
 
 


Both tops and pyjama poncho I received from my parents and sister and if you haven't noticed already I am a MASSIVE Disney fan!!!!! 

This top I wear as a pyjama top but I see no reason to why I couldn't wear it out during the Christmas season! I really love the navy colour of this top with the white snowflakes as it reminds me of  winter nights and it just gives it that warm feeling :)

This top I also use as a pyjama top however during summer I can see me wear this with denim shorts and a cute pair of sandals. If you did want any outfit ideas for any items on this post please just let me know in the comments :)

This pyjama poncho I received from my sister and is actually my second one because I happened to buy myself one in summer to which I fell in love with. I just think that the idea of a pyjama poncho is brilliant especially if you don't like wearing a onesie  or if it is too hot for a onesie but you still want that extra layer so I just think that these are perfect especially in the summer plus it has a cute hood!!!
 
 
Subscriptions.............

I think subscriptions are great presents but when I think of that I normally think of magazines, but for Christmas I actually received a 3 month glossy box subscription!
I had been looking at getting a glossy box subscription for quite a while but never ended up buying one but luckily my mum bought me a 3 month subscription for Christmas!
If you don't know what a glossy box is well it is basically a small box/package sent to your house once a month filled with beauty products for you to try :)
I think that the idea of this is great for finding new products which otherwise you may had never had tried.

I'm sorry but this packaging is just tooooo cute to not point out!!!!!

Whoever says that this isn't the cutest tissue paper with the cutest bow is a liar!!!

So as the present I opened the 1st month of the subscription and what lovely things the box held inside...........

Inside the box- from left to right-
1- Wilkinson Sword Intuition- Natural razor
2-Maybelline New York-Volum'Express Colossal Smokey eye mascara
3-Beautiful movements cosmetics- nude lip gloss (4513)
4-Rituals-Miracle balm
5-Seche-Nail Lacquer (Portobello 69218)
 
 
Fragrances.........

This fragrance I have been looking at for quite some time but I didn't realise that you could get this set. In this set there is 20ml travel size spray bottle (bottle with flower on) and a 15ml refill bottle with a small funnel which can be used to refill the travel size bottle. I think the idea of this is great and the bottle is really cute and pretty and great for your handbag on days out, traveling and even for a few weeks holiday
 
I was also fortunate enough to receive the 'viva la juicy' by juicy couture gift set this year. Originally this set was supposed to be £60 to which I think is very expensive but probably about right for the amount you receive however luckily my mum managed to get this for only £30 which I think is an amazing price and defiantly makes this gift set well worth the money especially since the perfume alone costs £35
Within the set I received 30ml viva la juicy perfume, a pink juicy couture makeup bag, a juicy couture shoe charm, a juicy couture duo nail varnish tube with the colours of pink and black and lastly a duo tube of a small 'viva la juicy' roller ball and a pink lip gloss. So for all 5 of these items for just £30 its just an offer that most people couldn't resist!
The 30ml perfume bottle is great for holidays and the duo of the roller ball and lip gloss is a perfect  size for any handbag along with the makeup bag being perfect size as well.
 
 
Home ware................

.
Jewellery hocks are a must-have in many girls bedrooms including mine, I have actually been looking for some for at least a year but have only seemed to have found wooden ones but I was looking for either mirror or diamante ones and I also wanted at least 3 of them but for them all to be the same design. Unfortunately I haven't had a lot of luck in finding any but thankfully my mum found these 3 in boots and gave me them for Christmas, even though these are very plain I really like the simple design as it will go well in any room of any colour and I think that they are a perfect size for neatly hanging a few necklaces or bracelets on each hock. 
 

 
Please leave comments below telling me if you  want me to style together any outfits using the clothes I have received.
Please also tell me what you got for Christmas and what your favourite gift was :)
 
Have a good start to the new year of 2014!!!!!!
 
Adios xxxxxxxxx
